Prettier shot:

1. Zavier's reverse layup

2. Matthew's step-back jumper to beat he shot clock

Relax, all right? We don't need to try to strike everybody out. Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. They should throw some ground balls - it's more democratic.

I think the biggest key is Iggy.  If he had scored his average in the first game, we win.  He hit a goose egg and we lost.

He needs to find his shot early and often.

My personal record was well over 200 on a comment.  I don't remember the comment, Florida was announcing a number of suspensions, and it was right around the whole McElwain/Shark photo thing.

My comment was "Wow, they're dropping faster than McElwain's pants at an aquarium"

The timing was enough that it was very popular and it got a lot of upvotes.

That's the plan, but they made that call (to suspend classes until Noon Thursday) early in the week.  Right now, it's still -8 actual/-27 wind chill.  They may not start them up at noon as planned, we haven't heard anything yet, so who knows.  Tomorrow it's expected to be in the 20s and back in the upper 30s/low 40s over the weekend, so the game should be fine for Friday night.

I was going to, but my daughter's choir is singing the national anthem at her local high school bball game Friday night, so we can't make it (start times are too close together).  From what I hear, it's pretty much sold out, so should be a good time/hot crowd.  Have a great time!

Zavier Simpson is in your shirt...and he just blocked your shot....and he just took your rebound....and he just drained a three....

Can you say PLAYER OF THE GAME?!?!?!?!?!

Iowa canceled classes starting this afternoon through Thursday.  We're going to have wind chills down to -50 and some parts of the state -60 thanks to all the farm land (not as many trees/natural windbreaks).

It's going to be colder here tomorrow than in Alaska.

One would think Michigan driver have to be good from all the practice at dodging pot holes.

 

I can honestly say, that in my 50 years, I've never seen such absent minded drivers as those I've encountered in Iowa.

01/17/2019 - 5:21pm From what I understand (from…

From what I understand (from all the reports I read) Gary played hurt all season.  His shoulder was injured before the ND game and he was not 100%, which affected him all season.  Even after they sat him the few games, there's no guarantee he got back to 100%, and may need surgery to correct the injury.  We don't know, because it was never fully disclosed.  I'm more inclined to give him a partial pass.

01/17/2019 - 4:51pm Yes, but he was waiting…

Yes, but he was waiting until after the Peach Bowl and Senior Bowl to have surgery to correct whatever was wrong.  This is either a new injury or has re-aggravated it to a point where he can't compete and had to pull out, which sucks for him.

I got it from the dealer where I got mine.  After trade-in on her old car, haggling and everything, we got her into it for around $8k (but it only had 65,000 miles on it and a 1-owner car)

I've never owned a Subaru, so I don't have an opinion on them.

 

As to your second question, I just put my MGoDaughter into a 2011 Nissan Rogue.  It's AWD, and she loves it.  I've been driving a 2016 for 3 years, have had no problems with mine.  We got a great deal on her 2011, it had low miles, runs great, and had decent options (we did have after-market seat warmers put in because Iowa winters are cold).  For the value, I'd recommend it as something to consider.

The team is 16-0 and 30-1 out of the last 31 games, the only loss coming in the national championship game, and you're questioning John Beilein's coaching decisions?

 

Seriously?

Frazier seems pretty decent, but I wonder how he'll do when he's got Zavier Abdul-Jabbar Simpson in his shirt?

Teske inside should feast at the rim.

It's suddenly very dusty in my office.

Watching his story unfold during the Purdue/OSU game, I gained a ton of respect for him, and reading this even more.  He has an amazing heart.  Thanks for sharing this, it's a great reminder about what's important in life.
